I lurk around here, and never put up pics of the bike I run motors on. this is it. its an electra frame. so far, its seen two different motors, two different rear wheels, and a whole bunch of time spent. 80cc motor pieced together from two different shot motors with a new gasket kit. thing runs like a banshee. bars are from my friends stash given to me after a bent mine. has a ngk 6 plug, mopar plug wire(found on ground at junkyard and FREE) are the only mods. only plan for the future is a 36 tooth sprocket from spooky, and thats it. I get 31mph with this setup and love it.
my car is a vw diesel getting 50 mpg, and i love having it just sit. no point firing that thing up to go five blocks....
i just call it a beater, because it sure doesn't look like it did when it was new eight years ago, and It could use some tlc, but never seems to get it. I blew the first motor I had on it, and learned to take it a little easier on these little things. took half of a friends shot up motor, and put what I could off of mine into that along with some gaskets, and got it running again. It needs to be cleaned up a bit and such, but overall, its definitely "the jankey" bike when there are others around it. this setup seems to be running really wheel. ordering my sprocket tomorrow, and I think thats about all the speed I want on this bike.
and the tires are retrorunners from electra. they can be found online or in certain bike shops.
Nice bike! And not at all a beater. It's nice to see another motorized Electra! My first motorized bicycle was built on an Electra Coaster 7 frame. It's undergone quite a few mods over the past year but has been the best performing motorized bicycle I've built (three total so far, parts for #4 on the way).
I Have To Go By The Shop And Take A Pic Of A Real Beater. I Bought It For 50 Bucks, And I Think I Overpaid. I Was In A Hurry To Buy A 28 Ft Pontoon To Make Into A Houseboat. I Did Not Even Notice The Muffler Was Gone, The Frame Is Black From No Muffler. Motor Is Real Loose. Has A Cheap Chrome Job! Lol. DON`T EVEN KNOW IF IT RUNS! Like The Big Utillity Gas Tank ( Like Fair 31`s Junkyard Dog). RON .
